The Brother HL-1850 is a monochrome laser printer that is designed to benefit small offices. It may not have many features or functions that set it apart from other models, but it does provide solid quality and efficient output rates. The high-quality Brother HL-1850 toner can create professional results that will suffice for any business. With crisp and bold text, these documents will be easy to read.
The single black Brother HL-1850 toner can reach a maximum resolution of 600 dpi. This quality is not among the leading on the market, but it is good enough for a unit intended to print text documents. There are no color Brother toner
cartridges used in this unit, but the one Brother HL-1850 toner cartridge can yield up to 3,300 pages. If the high capacity-version is purchased, 6,500 pages can be printed.
Weighing 40 pounds, with the toner
installed, and a frame of 17x21x18 inches, the HL-1850 will fit in a home or small office easily, though it may require more than one person to move it. It has two trays—one main input tray with a 250 sheet capacity and a multi-purpose tray that holds 100 pages, making the collective paper capacity 350 sheets. This device is connected to a PC via USB and parallel ports, and it is compatible with most major operating systems.
When using the Brother HL-1850 toner, nearly 20 pages per minute can be printed. These speeds are acceptable and will be enough for most small offices. However, if you need a faster printer the Brother HL-2140 toner
printer is worth consideration. Not only does it print at a good rate, but it can print on both sides of the paper with its built-in duplexer. Replacement Brother HL-1850 toner cartridges are available online and from local supplies stores. They can be purchased new from Brother or remanufactured from third party vendors. Either will provide the same page yields and resolution, but the remanufactured printer toner will save money.
